This 3D Printed Home was "Built" in Less than 3 Hours

Chinese company ZhuoDa has assembled a two-story home in record speed; the modular house, comprised of six 3D printed modules, was assembled on-site in less than three hours. Likened to LEGO, the prefabricated home was 90 percent built off-site before its components were shipped to its permanent location. As Inhabitat reports, the home only took about 10 days to complete from start to finish.

Each module bears weight independently, allowing the house to withstanding high-magnitude earthquakes. Its walls are also filled with a "top secret," heat-insulating material sourced from industrial and agricultural waste that makes the home fire- and waterproof. The company is expected to unveil the new material shortly. 

Interior finishes consist of decorative sheeting made from jade, wood, granite or marble.
